Now, with embeds

We’re quietly adding features, and one that was added just now is the ability to embed viewpoints on your own website.

Under the share icon, you were already able to copy the link to the viewpoint in question, and directly share to a number of social media platforms, but now you also have the ability to copy a bit of code that you can use on any website.

The result looks something like what you see below.

You’re probably wondering why this embedded viewpoint does not include a map or Street View. A fair question, but the answer is based on simple economics: embedding maps and Street View ain’t free, and we simply can’t run the risk of going bankrupt.

How does this work?

Placecloud shows you sites of significance through short podcasts ("viewpoints"). We particularly value contributions from academics, writers, artists, certified city guides, and other experts.
